Banana Bread

1/2 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c mashed ripe bananas
2c flour
1 tsp baking soda

Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, then bananas. Add flour and soda, stirring just unil combined. Pour into greased 9x5 loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pan and let cool, store in regrigerator or freeze.

This is the easiest and best banana bread recipe I have ever made. I am not sure where I got the recipe. When I make this bread, I will usually do 1 1/2 of the recipe and then put into two loaf pans (the one loaf was too large and in order for it to get done, the outsides were too brown). Sometimes I will add in some cinnamon or nuts, depends on my mood. You could add anything to this recipe.


  1. One of the cooking shows I watch says to add a bit of nutmeg to things to give it a taste that people wonder what it is. I bet in this a pinch of nutmeg would be good.

    I bought some more nutmeg this past weekend so I can start to add it to more recipes.
